  1. Take Boeser Off of the Point on Powerplays

    This. He is up high to try to create space. Better puck movement will allow him to creep lower instead of cheating up high.
  2. Take preseason hockey out to the back and shoot it.

      Shift-4

      Yes please

      It is a whole lot of stupid

  3. I'd definitely say you're right, but tenacity is for the regular season... I've liked the way he has moved the puck up the ice quickly. Few Dmen on this team can do it.
  4. Not even close. He has been far and away the Canucks' best dman (not much of an accomplishment, but he was great on the PK all night).
  5. Boeser's added muscle might not be doing him many favors early in the preseason... may need some time to adjust to his new weight.
  6. Especially since it is in Utah where the family tree of those Mormon children is probably a straight line.
  7. [Waivers] 20 players - Sept. 24, 2018

    The waiver wire is such a great source for all-name team candidates.

    Yeah, I had to turn my volume off for a lot of it.

    Sounds like you are being a bit hypersensitive. I never suggested Conor was the person that dug up this material. Obviously I wouldn't have thought this given that I posted an older article and video. The difference is that when Conor says something, people start looking into it.
  10. Except Juloevi might be a second pairing guy, Tyamkin is not guaranteed to come back, and Brisebois and Woo are both huge question marks. Of the 12 dmen, only Hughes and Stetcher are sure-fire top 4 dmen, and I'd accept arguments that Stetch isn't top 4 on a strong team. I'm going to give Gudbranson a pass on the preseason and see what he can do during a healthy regular season. Hutton has played well, but this year is basically make-or-break for him. I think the writing is already on the wall for Pouliot and MDZ. Neither will be in the lineup by Fall 2019. There are big holes at D that are going to need to be addressed via UFA. The hole is too big to fill via trade, as there would be too much the Canucks would have to send back. Don't need to sign a #1 dman, but certainly a goal for JB should be a second pairing dman that can let Hughes do his thing. Next year: Stetcher Edler UFA Hughes Juolevi Gud Hutton/McEneny/Sautner This is all assuming Tanev can be traded for pieces that help the rebuild.

    Thought people might find this interesting: https://www.fuqrafiles.com/knowledgebase/nypd-informant-ali-abdel-aziz/ It is regarding Khabib's manager (also manages Frankie Edgar and others) and describes his ties to a terrorist organization, questions whether he is legally allowed to be in the US, etc. People criticized Conor's seemingly unhinged press conference yesterday, but underneath all of this idiocy was a guy that did his homework. He called out Ali for not paying child support (apparently owes 50k) to a son that he abandoned in Colorado after turning FBI informant. EDIT: I should warn that the guy who wrote the above article seems like a nutjob that is misrepresenting himself as a Professor. He does not have a PhD (or a JD), which is a requirement for actually being a professor at a real university. However, he is not the only person making such claims. Mike Russell (MMA Journalist) is doing a story on it:
  12. Gone are the days of Megna and Vey on the power play.
  13. And most importantly, no Edler to look them off and pass to Baertschi in the corner.
  14. Just tuning in. Can anyone give me their thoughts on how people have looked?
  15. Rate The Last Movie You Saw - 2

    Agreed, though I might have even liked Del Toro more in this one. Nobody has a better nonreaction to having a gun in their face than him. Just zero Fs. Made me watch the Usual Suspects as well. However, subtracting Emily Blunt pretty much guarantees that you can't improve upon the initial product.
